Adding own fonts in AIX


I am new to AIX and want to install some fonts (in Indian Languages) created by us into the AIX server and we should be able to use these fonts in Mozilla and other user applications.
There is no Info Print Manager.
We have font files as PFB/PFM and TTF.
Which is the best method to go about it.

dh_installxfonts - register X fonts SYNOPSIS
dh_installxfonts [debhelperoptions] DESCRIPTION
dh_installxfonts is a debhelper program that is responsible for registering X fonts, so their corresponding fonts.dir, fonts.alias, and fonts.scale be rebuilt properly at install time. Before calling this program, you should have installed any X fonts provided by your package into the appropriate location in the package build directory, and if you have fonts.alias or fonts.scale files, you should install them into the correct location under etc/X11/fonts in your package build directory. Your package should depend on xfonts-utils so that the update-fonts-* commands are available. (This program adds that dependency to ${misc:Depends}.) This program automatically generates the postinst and postrm commands needed to register X fonts. These commands are inserted into the maintainer scripts by dh_installdeb. See dh_installdeb(1) for an explanation of how this works. NOTES
See update-fonts-alias(8), update-fonts-scale(8), and update-fonts-dir(8) for more information about X font installation. See Debian policy, section 11.8.5. for details about doing fonts the Debian way. SEE ALSO
debhelper(7) This program is a part of debhelper. AUTHOR
